Toothaches are frustrating, painful, and persistent. You only want relief. At the office of Linda Rick, DDS, MS, PC, you will get exactly that for all of the common causes of a toothache in Lisle.
The most simple and easily remedied type of toothache is one that results from a cavity, either one that has recently developed, or one that has previously been treated but the filling has loosened or fallen out. All it takes is a new filling. The opening in your tooth means the nerve inside is exposed, and that’s why you have a toothache in Lisle. The same is true when you chip or crack one of your teeth. The solution in such an instance is that impressions are taken for the formation of a crown to restore and protect the tooth. Crowns are made at the dental lab, but while you wait you will be fitted with a temporary crown. The biggest danger in all of the above circumstances is that while your inner tooth is vulnerable, bacteria will cause an infection in the pulp. If that happens, the pain is likely to be even worse, and you will require root canal therapy as quickly as possible to save the tooth. Fortunately, our endodontist is a root canal specialist, and so in addition to your assurance that the procedure will be conducted with gentle care and precision, if you’re nervous then you can take advantage of nitrous oxide sedation for the best possible experience. The infected pulp and nerve are removed and the canals are cleaned, disinfected, and sealed. A crown finishes off the full process, restoring your tooth to full size.
Don’t hesitate to contact us right away when you have a toothache in Lisle. The quicker the treatment, the better the outcome is likely to be.
